We have been incredibly fortunate to encounter some of the world’s most incredible cars. I believe that the best cars are the ones with the best history. They come with a story, they have character.

I love cars with original interiors, patina on every switch and gauge. Vintage leather has a smell that cannot be duplicated and some interiors have a sheen that even the best restorers cannot replicate.

We recently met the owner of an incredible 1981 BMW M1. A former journalist who was invited personally by BMW to
purchase one of the last supercars produced. He took delivery of the car in Germany and never looked back. A true enthusiast, the M1 followed him during his incredible career that brought him and the M1 to almost every continent. South Africa, New Zealand, Mexico, Arizona and eventually Miami.

During that time the car was brought to car shows, displayed at BMW dealers and lovingly cherished. A combination of period photos, car show placards, old registration stickers and original Pirelli P7 tires tell the incredible story of an M1 and its loving owners 36 years together.

Never abused, completely original and only 13,000 kms.

We are honored to offer this car to the public for the first time in many years. We feel it’s our duty that the next caretaker must be as loving and as passionate as its first.

New to South Africa. Complete with original photos at delivery, records, books and tools.

Stunning original survivor example. Completely bone stock with the exception of aftermarket 1980s Blaupunkt Speakers installed.

At Curated, we do not acquire cars simply for inventory but rather based on what the car is.  We love interesting provenance, very low production, very low mileage, very special and often weird cars
